Also we found out that these funds totaling $750,000,00 was transferred directly from the central bank of Nigeria to the below stated bank account on your authorization and an international ATM CARD was also sent to your house address.

CONTRACT EXECUTED: A SPECIAL AGENT REVEREND
KELVIN WILLIAMS THRILLER
“Agent Williams,” Assistant Director Byron Fletchman said, gesturing towards a chair. “We’ve got another one.”
“Same M.O. Inheritance payment. Nigerian. Approved four times, completed twice, keeps coming up in debt reconciliation and verification.”
“Another dead trail, Williams. The Board Of Trustees And Directors went to the national e-mail directory, sent out a request for personal information with a twenty-four hour deadline. No response.”
“You think payment’s been made?”
Fletchman slammed his palm flat on his desk. Williams placid as a glacier until Fletchman opened his mouth. “Goddammit! Sorry, Williams.”
“I serve the Lord first and the Bureau second, sir.”
“I know—look, it gets to me. That’s no excuse. Look… we just don’t know. The benefactor won’t respond. Maybe they’ve been paid, maybe they haven’t. We’re completely baffled.”
“And you want me to find out.”
“You’re the best we have, Williams.”
“I’ll get right on it, sir.”
“You know what you have to do. This is important, Williams. Three quarters of a million dollars are at stake.”
“I’ll bring him to God, sir. And if that doesn’t work….”
Silence hung in the air like gunsmoke.
“…I’ll bring him to justice,” Williams concluded.
Williams went downstairs to his office and said a short prayer before opening the file already on his desk. This was big: the United States, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the United Nations, and other international bodies were trying to reduce and eradicate poverty, but were being thwarted by a sinister organization of program recipients receiving duplicate inheritances. The Federal Government Of Nigeria was keen on getting at least some of the money refunded to them, but recipients cleverly refused to respond to the e-mails sent personally by the former Secretary General of the United Nations, who personally drafted and typed each and every message. The governments involved tried to keep a lid on the emerging scandal, but the funds were initially deposited with a chattered bank in Hong Kong, so everybody within earshot now knew about the problem.
This wouldn’t be easy. Williams’ last investigation of an unresponsive beneficiary ended in gunfire, the suspect wounded and Williams’ partner, Danny Germaine, dying in Williams’ arms while Williams administered last rites.
Williams’ phone rang. He picked it up. “Special Agent Reverend Kelvin Williams.”
Static. Williams gave the handset a quizzical look and hung up. The Bureau was having phone problems.
The phone rang again. Williams picked it up. More static, but this time he could hear someone breathing on the other end of the line. “Who is this?”
“I’ve got your money.”
“Who is this? What money?”
“Your hundred and fifty, preacher.”
“Get that to us and we can release your funds. But we have to know who you are, and your age, sex, occupation, et cetera.”
“I got your money preacher, but this isn’t going to be easy. You’re going to have to work for it.”
“The Bureau doesn’t make deals.” Williams had the phone wedged between ear and shoulder while he tried to initiate a trace via the Bureau’s computer system.
“The hundred-fifty is in one dollar bills, preach. You’re gonna have to find them. You’ll be contacted with further instructions.” There was a metallic click in Williams’ ear, then silence.
Williams looked at his computer screen. This was impossible.
The call had been placed from inside the building.
